"My thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones of the victims in this morning’s horrific massacre in Orlando. We must band together and turn our anger into action. We must stand up against hate, intolerance, and gun violence. While the investigation is ongoing, we cannot ignore that the alleged attacker targeted a gay nightclub. We cannot ignore that he supposedly had an assault-style rifle, weapons that are legal in the United States. We not only stand in unity with Orlando, but we stand ready to take action." - Public Advocate Tish James
